SARACENO INTERVENED THE ROOF OF THE MET WITH A SURREAL CITY OF CLOUDS

Tomas Saraceno, the famous Argentine architect, installed in 2012 his piece “Cloud City” in one of the most welcoming venues worldwide art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. His piece is comprised of a geodesic dome with 16 interconnected modules. This kind of “roof garden” measured 54 feet long, 25 feet wide and 28 ft high. Angular shaped installation, as a bubble, comprises cut glass segments shapes different from each other and connected through metal joints and steel cables. His work reflects the artist’s interest in chemistry, biology, physics, engineering and the cosmos, playing through architecture, forms that resemble clouds, bacteria, universes and neuronal connections in animals. Once inside the structure, the viewer is able to experience a panoramic view of Central Park and sui generis perspective of the iconic Manhattan. The clear glass reflection generate alternative surreal spatial illusion.
